on secretary clinton's recent testimony before congress, it is clear that the state department and the department of defense are already consulting on this review. the secretary of state's accountability review board focused on the need to ensure the state department puts greater focus on high-risk, high-threat posts as well as posts where the host nation, despite having the will to protect diplomatic facilities, does not have the capacity to protect them. in some cases, these posts are located in countries where the department of defense and the state department have assistance programs with similar objectives. these are perhaps areas where the two departments can explore whether additional collaboration is appropriate. during secretary of state clinton's recent testimony before congress, the emphasized the importance of properly resourcing u.s. africa command, afrikom reached full operational capability less than five years ago, and has been in what's called an economy of force effort to date. the events of last september race questions about the adequacy of resourcing with r
the night of september 11th and when secretary clinton said she had a clear eyed view of the threats we faced in libya, the secretary of defense and chairman of the joint chiefs said they knew that night it was a terrorist attack and knew of the reporting coming out of libya from ambassador stevens says we cannot defend the consulate. she was not clear eyed. she was blind and deaf and the president of the united states never picked up the phone to call anybody in libya to help these four people under attack. the first ambassador killed in 30 years. they withheld information. i think they manipulated the evidence after the attack to create a political narrative rather than sharing with the public the truth about an al-qaeda attack that was preplanned and precoordinated. we will get to the bottom of this. >> chris: let me ask you one more question about the sequester before we let you go, senator. you know if we go into the sequester the president is going to hammer republicans. the white house has already put out a list of the terrible things that are going to happen if a sequester kicks
pollster for president bill clinton. pat, what did you think? >> he was better than hagel in the hearing. >>gregg: that is not saying much. >> he got caught up in the drone stuff and making incredible statements. what came out because the same day he testified we had outgoing secretary of defense panetta, went to testify on benghazi and told us what we learned. two weeks ago, we talked last week about the difference between what panetta and clinton said about iran versus hagel, and two weeks ago when they went on "60 minutes" we called it the biggest pay off in history. in that show, i remember suggesting one of the reasons that came out of hillary clinton's testimony was interesting to pursue, what was the president doing? we now know the president wasn't engaged. they had a 5:15 minute meeting that was preplanned and he did not talk to secretary of defense, clinton, and according to panetta, talked to no one. what we have a foreign policy that is coming apart. >>gregg: you were in the carter administration. all hands on deck the. >> the president himself, for ten, 15, 20 hours a day, i
is now a professor at the harvard business school, former fha director in the clinton years, was certainly one of the most voluble players in the commission. i also want to point out senator alfonzo jackson. please stand and be recognized. [applause] i want to turn the podium back over to senator george mitchell. >> years ago, when bob dole, howard baker, tom daschle, and i gathered to establish the bipartisan by -- bipartisan policy center, we were dismayed to the extent to which our political process appeared to be in gridlock as a consequence of excessive partisanship and ideological posturing. that concern is heightened today. i frequently cite the example of the presidential campaign of 1800 when jefferson supporters called president adams a hermaphrodite, lacking, they said, the strength of a man or the gentleness of a woman. supporters said that its jefferson were elected, robbery, rape, and murder would be openly taught and practiced in our country. it was rough and tough when we were there, but it has gotten proper and tupper today. we at the bipartisan policy cente
to states. a man was arrested at dallas -- at dulles airport. he had been close to the clintons administration and have worked with the bush administration. he was -- close to the clinton administration and worked with the bush demonstration. he is doing 23 years in prison. what would be the prospect the someone's gets back into the country and, -- someone gets back into the country and, from a political standpoint, they are all rest -- he starts talking about -- their arrest could be politically embarrassing. what if you have someone working closely with the president. we had a member of a known terrorist organization meeting in the white house last year it even though secretary napolitano could not answer that she even knew that was happening when it was in the papers. by the time she gets into the city and she says he was vetted 3 tons. there are things that could be proven so politically embarrassing that if somebody gets back into the lead to states, someone might look for a way to see that they never testify. we are talking hypothetically. i would like to know what of the

. >> with respect to keystone, secretary clinton put in place a very open and transparent process which i am committed to seeing through. i can guarantee you that it will be fair and transparent, accountable. and we hope that we will be able to be in a position to make an announcement in the near term. >>gretchen: here to weigh in, michigan's republican representative fred upton, who by the way, wants us to call him fred. i'm going to do what you want. all right, fred, what do you think of john kerry? is he going to flip-flop on this and now be in favor of the keystone pipeline? >> it's been four and a half years they have been studying this. we know the safest way to transport this oil is by pipeline. canada is going to increase production to four million barrels per day before the end of the decade. they are going to send it either to china or build a pipeline east to the atlantic and put it on a boat to send it to new orleans. isn't it better to put it on a pipeline that is going to be more efficient and getting it to the right place? >>brian: it is as frustrating following governor cuomo
.s. state department said he's gone in 36 hours and hillary clinton says his days are numbered, my day is numbered, too, how high the number is. he's supported by iran and they're sending him weapons and he's supported by russia and they're leaving him support at the united nations. he has a long way to go. >> the u.s. has not intervened in syria as we did in libya. as we did, know not militarily, but in egypt with the president of the united states coming and saying mubarak needs to go. >> what's the difference here? >> two things, you have the russian now protecting syria and the united nations and can't get the u.n. vote they tried to get. second you're learning after the third or fourth time. that the devil we know in terms of what the united states is looking at and israel is looking at is better than the devil we don't know. and the intelligence says that the syrian rebels often times have ties to al-qaeda and when you think about what libya had when the libyan revolution had. that's tonka toys with the systems ripped from hezbollah, back to the iranians, in terms of tanks, armor

, if the president had been willing to go back to bill clinton taxes on all. he was not. it is the height of hypocrisy to come in 30 days, actually in about one day, and begin talking about the next round of tax increases on a relatively limited group on our population, the 1% or 3%, and in fact start reducing their ability to have working capital for new oil exploration, for new natural gas exploration. the thing that the president just a few days ago standing in front of where you are today lauded as great, we are becoming oil self-sufficient, we are natural gas self-sufficient, we are able to move to cleaner fuels for our energy. but let's break something else down. my opponent, i keep saying opponent, he's my ranking member, but he is the loyal opposition here, he he talks about $100 billion. i think we need to break it down. that's $100 billion over 10 years. it's not even $10 billion in the first year. his $100 billion of sacrifice, many of those sacrifices won't even occur because people aren't going to necessarily be here for all 10 years, because next year or the year after this
in the ouster of assad. >> brian: the "washington post" lead editorial today says hillary clinton and david petraeus, running the c.i.a. identified the group that they believe would have been the preferrable group to take over through all the rebels, they weeded through and had a plan. and the president nixed it. the word is too political. they wanted to make it seem we're not on a war footing with the election a month away. >> gretchen: maybe the election playing a huge role. let's look at the fox news polls right now. recently conducted, how many people feel our country compared to five years ago? nearly half of those polled say america is weaker and less powerful today. that's 48%. 24% believe that the country is stronger and more powerful. 27% say nothing changed. >> steve: that's kind of gloomy. you know, the president told john boehner during the negotiations, washington doesn't have a spending problem. health care cost too much. so we asked you. president obama says government doesn't have a spending problem. do you think it does? 83% of you say yes. the government does have a spendi
